Leslie Zager

Owner, Creative Director


With over 20 years of experience, Leslie has worked for some of the largest advertising agencies in the country. Her work has taken her from Chicago to New York to Detroit, creating print, digital and broadcast work for clients including Ford, GM, Verizon Wireless, La-Z-Boy, and more. In 2006, a passion for branding, as well as paper, inspired her to launch bluedotpapershop.com. A successful online specialty paper store, bluedotpapershop was sold in 2010. With a growing list of freelance clients, Leslie started 185 Designs in 2013, providing full-service advertising solutions to clients both large and small. 

A balance of both creativity and business sense helps Leslie provide clients with compelling, results-driven work that also respects timelines and budgets. Comfortable in any medium, her skills include print and digital design as well as copywriting, public relations and event planning.
